Overwhelming support from Manx community

Stunning photographs that capture the beauty of the Isle of Man have been submitted to the Manx Blind Welfare Society for its 2015 calendar.

The local community is backing the fund raising project. The charity is building on the success of its 2014 calendar which sold hundreds of copies all over the world. This year, the appeal went out to photographers to submit pictures which show the Island in a different light.

Debbie Kenyon of the Manx Blind Welfare Society said: 'Just hours after announcing we would be producing a 2015 calendar to raise funds I started receiving beautiful pictures of the Island which the photographers, both professional and amateur, kindly said we could use in the project. With the wonderful selection we have already received, we know it is going to be a stunning calendar, but there is still time to send in more if you would like us to consider including them.

'I was also delighted to hear from many local companies, including several who supported us in 2014, asking about opportunities to sponsor the calendar to help make sure all the money raised from sales goes directly to supporting our work. Some of the pages have already been sponsored, but there are still opportunities if anyone would like to get involved.’
